Santa Series Number 9 - On the Links

When he needs to get away but can't make it to the beach, Santa heads for the golf course to work off some of those Christmas cookies.


This is the third "style" Santa in this series.   Yes, you still have to figure it out on your own (not hard)... but I will tell you where I got the cleats for his golf shoes - the part that you throw away when you use the spiral punch!  Aren't I a clever girl?

I have no photos of hubby as a child with Santa.  I will add photos of hubby on the golf course to this layout because this is the only way I'll ever have photos of him with Santa --- you do what you have to do...



The golf bag was freehand not punched so don't spend your time trying to figure that out.  But the golf clubs come from the word window and brushed silver paper.

Dear Anonymous,

I am so glad you asked because I meant to tell you all that.

That is the Texture Wheel! I ran it diagonally two directions and that was the result - I LOVE IT. I have started throwing that texture wheel everywhere.

If you back and look at Goodnight Santa's PJs you will see it there too.

TeeHee, Santa plays golf. Too funny.
Love him. The cleats are too cute, never would have thought of that.

Congrats on making Blog finds of the day again.

Hi Ellen,

This Santa looks a bit Scottish to me...maybe its the designer paper from which you have made his trousers, or its his face made with the heart punch and style of hat...all that is missing to make him truely Scottish is a kilt and some bagpipes...
